Feret participates in summer scholars program

Tiffany Feret, of Brigantine, an elementary/special education major, will work with Mary Applegate, Ph.D., on their topic “Common core state standards: Are students ready/ prepared for new tests, learning and teaching styles?”

Feret gave up summer vacation to remain on campus at St. Joseph’s University as a member of the Summer Scholars Program. The program, which runs for 11 weeks May-August, requires students to work exclusively with a faculty member to produce a written description of their research that will be published by the university, and to present their findings next spring during the Celebration of Student Achievement event. For their work, students receive a stipend, on-campus housing, and the opportunity to participate in social and educational programs.
